John is a beast and I can't wait to get my hands on this one. This seems to be the perfect topper to a Casper mattress. I hope you all can grasp the gravity of the situation.

@danielsing3r Thanks for the hunt Daniel! Hi everyone! Happy to answer any questions you may have! Here is a bit about the blanket: Gravity is a premium-grade, therapeutic weighted blanket that harnesses the power of deep touch stimulation – a proven anxiety treatment – to gently distribute deep pressure across your body. Engineered to be around 10% of your body weight, Gravity helps relax the nervous system by simulating the feeling of being held or hugged. This increases serotonin and melatonin levels and decreases cortisol levels—improving your mood and promoting restful sleep at the same time. All without ever filling a prescription. I've become pretty addicted to mine and I use it a ton while I meditate. Excited to bring this product to everyone else now! Looking forward to hearing what you guys think!

@johnnyfio if i want to share it with the gf, should i get the lighter version so it's 10% of her weight or go to mine?

@itsjlev We designed the blanket to really be optimized for personal comfort. This way the weight is distributed correctly and you can really feel the effects. I'd recommend getting the couples pack so you each have your own sensory deprivation cocoon:)

@johnnyfio @danielsing3r Does the extra weight come with extra warmth? I'd love a heavier blanket for the reasons you mentioned, but I'd worry about overheating at night.

@thebig3c @danielsing3r its breathable as is, but the outer cover is removable if you feel like its too hot. Thanks for commenting!

I personally just put some kettlebells on my chest before I fall asleep. Feels like I'm being hugged by The Rock.

I'm a sucker for anything that can help me sleep better - looks cool. How does this handle temperature? It doesn't retain to much heat?

I love a heavy comforter and have always thought how weird it was to enjoy the lead apron they put on you at the dentist when they take X-rays. It's nice and cool and heavy. Gravity seems like it's going to do just that :)

@kristofertm ^ Yes! That lead apron... I tell them to just leave it on me and doze off.
